A ragtag coalition of public-health activists believe that America’s pandemic restrictions are too lax—and they say they have the science to prove it.
A poem by Sam Friedman...
A progressive coalition called the People's CDC on Tuesday criticized the federal government for releasing a "horrifying set" of relaxed public health guidelines earlier this month and urged lawmakers to allocate sufficient funding to ensure that everyone has free access to masks, tests, treatments, vaccines, and other resources needed to defeat Covid-19.
We’re epidemiologists, nurses and physicians, artists and biologists. We have come together with a common anger at the US government’s handling of Covid.
The People’s CDC is a coalition of public health practitioners, scientists, healthcare workers, educators, advocates and people from all walks of life working to reduce the harmful impacts of COVID-19.
We provide guidance and policy recommendations to governments and the public on COVID-19, disseminating evidence-based updates that are grounded in equity, public health principles, and the latest scientific literature.
Speaking as an individual, People’s CDC reports automatically make me feel less alone and less weird for continuing to take basic steps to protect myself and everyone I encounter from COVID. Like social distancing, wearing masks in public spaces, and keeping up to date with vaccinations.
